A Communications Guide kâ-isi-pîkiskwâtoyahk
The Guide provides details on important cultural considerations and concepts including an understanding of the position that Elders play in day-to-day life. The acknowledgement of the central role of Elders is a fundamental step to conducting relationships with First Nations peoples. As well, the Guide provides information on aspects of First Nations lives that are traditional practices that reflect a mindset and worldview that goes beyond the mundane and into the spirit of life. These aspects should not be judged as entirely spiritual or a practice of faith, but as reflective of the cultures from which they spring; a way of life.
